Every hockey fan loves to see hockey players fight, but hockey fans love it even more when goalies fight! And in tonight’s game between the Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers, that’s exactly what happened. With the Caps up 7-0 (yes that’s not a typo) a brawl broke out that rivaled ones that the Flyers would have started back in the 7o’s when they were the “Broad Street Bullies.” While Caps forward Tom Wilson scrapped with Flyers’ winger Wayne Simmonds, both Holtby and Emery met in the far corner, put up their dukes, and settled the score like men. Though Emery, who’s famous for dropping the gloves against Martin Biron and the Buffalo Sabres while in Ottawa, got the better of Holtby, the fact that there was a goalie fight was good enough!

This fight was huge, but the highlight was easily Flyers goalie Ray Emery beating up Caps netminder Braden Holtby.

While the game between SCSU and UND was on going on last night, my twitter feed blew up with this game and incident. Nothing beats a good ole fashion Donnybrook in my opinion.
This is one thing about the sport of hockey, when the score gets out of hand you had better tighten the chin strap and keep you head on a swivel. Some say that Flyers goalie Ray Emery had no business skating...
Line brawl plus Braden Holtby vs Ray Emery...A 5.07 GAA will make you do that. Crossing Broad had Emery's dopey post game comments in Ray Emery is an Asshole:Was there any conversation involved with Holtby at all?Yeah a little bit. I don’t remember. He didn’t want a fight but I said basically protect yourself. He didn’t really have much of a choice.Do you think the league...
It is inexcusable for the NHL to talk about player safety while allowing Ray Emery to assault Braden Holtby.
The Capitals beat the Flyers easily on Friday night by a score of 7-0, but all of the talk following this one will be on Ray Emery. The Flyers wanted to take out their frustration and since they weren't having much luck scoring goals, they decided to drop their mitts. Goaltender Ray Emery skated the length of the ice to challenge Washington's Braden Holtby. Holtby wasn'...

Hearing John Walton call the Ray Emery assault on Braden Holtby on Friday was the hockey equivalent to listening to Herbert Morrison call the Hindenburg disaster.
The Capitals, without superstar forward Alexander Ovechkin, went into Philadelphia on Friday night and opened up a 7-0 lead on their new Metropolitan Division opponent.
With the Flyers struggling to do anything right at both ends of the ice, their frustration level got to a point where an enormous line brawl broke out during the third period.
The highlight of it all was a goalie...
